« back to classes page
During the Spanish Colonial period, New Mexican women enjoyed various kinds of protection under the law for which their English-speaking counterparts had to wait nearly two hundred years. Drawing from original historic documents, historian Linda Tigges will share stories of women who exercised their legal rights in eighteenth century New Mexico, protecting themselves from bad marriages, loss of inheritance, and aggressive neighbors. The separate legal identify which Spanish Colonial women held, following Roman, Visigothic, and German antecedents, will be discussed.
